List Of Write-In Candidates From Alabama Senate Race Emerges—And They're Fantastic

By Jonna Ivin-Patton

The first Democrat in 25 years was voted into the U.S. Senate in the state of Alabama. Doug Jones barely won over Republican Roy Moore who had numerous accusations of past sexual misconduct with teenage girls. Even with the shocking details of Moore's history coming into light, Jones narrowly squeaked out the win with a slim margin of 20,715 votes. Still, Alabama voters felt confident , or didn't care enough for the outcome, they were willing to waste their vote with a comedic write in name. 

23,000 people, enough to have given the win to Moore, opted to write in such names as Jesus, Kermit the Frog , Vladimir Putin  Bruce Wayne,  and Tyler Perry. It seems shocking  with all the controversy surrounding Moore's inappropriate sex scandals the race wasn't a complete landslide. It's even more shocking, knowing what a tight race it was turning out to be, that voters would be willing to take such an irresponsible risk. 

Now that the election is over, we can all have a laugh over the funnier names but just don't waste your vote in the future!
